Welcome to Toby Garbett
Toby Garbett is an Olympian and two-time World Champion rower. An experienced Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer, he combines his own training regime with providing leading edge fitness training to private clients. Since 1996, Toby has been a member of Leander Club, the British team's high performance centres in Henley-on Thames, Caversham Training Centre and the English Institute of Sport at Bisham Abbey. He first represented Great Britain in 1997 aged 19 and has since competed in 5 World Championships and attended 2 Olympic Games.
Toby's unique approach to fitness and well being has been developed through his own experiences as an Olympic athlete. With access to some of the world's leading coaches, physiotherapists, nutritionists and sport psychologists, he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and understanding about what it takes to succeed. He brings his indepth understanding of focus, motivation and self belief into his work with clients, and can help them achieve their goals whether they are complete beginners, returning to fitness after a break or injury or competing for competition.
Sport at a world class level is always evolving. Athletes are continually becoming stronger and faster. This is achieved not only by hard work but by always being on the cutting edge of development in sport whether it be in nutrition, physiology, psychology or general technical advances. In elite sport, the margins between success and failure/winning and losing are slight and Toby has developed the mindset required to sustain performance at this level. During his international rowing career, he experienced illness, injury and disappointment which tested his motivation to the fullest. Bouncing back from these setbacks gave him renewed energy and determination which he now brings into his work as a Personal Trainer.
